Dining Rooms …. From A to Z
Dining Rooms are often the second most important interior design showcase in a home, after the foyer, because this is where one entertains guests.
Dining rooms are the perfect place to add design drama that will make your dinner parties spectacular. You can go a little crazy here with a bold wall color or large artwork. At the same time, it’s important that your family has a comfortable and beautiful ambiance where they can enjoy at-home dining.
Even though everything seems to be going more casual these days, families (at least Mom and dad) enjoy having a separate dining room with no television. This puts the focus on eating and conversation.
Selecting a Dining Table and Chairs
Every dining room requires a table. A pedestal-base table is often a practical choice because it gives maximum knee room. Round or oval tables make it easier to squeeze in an extra person when necessary. A buffet placed against a wall is used for food service or display. Many dining rooms also feature a storage area for storing and displaying china. This can be a free-standing unit or a custom built-in, depending on the configuration of the dining room.
Dining chairs should have indoor/outdoor fabric or at least upholstery fabric that has been stain treated. They don’t necessarily need to match. You could select totally different styles for host and hostess chairs at both ends of your table.
Dining Room Chandelier
If you have a chandelier, don’t hang it higher than necessary. It can’t be so low that it obstructs seeing the person across from you. But the light should light up the faces of all the diners.
Wallpaper is gaining popularity. It’s a good way to introduce color, pattern, texture … even that drama needed to spark up your dining room for the perfect family gathering or dinner party. There are many possibilities for achieving your dream dining room.

When she presented me with the design, it literally took my breath away. The beauty of what she had designed was unparalleled and the quality is unsurpassed.
